Colorado Community Church has built a culture that is intentionally multi-generational, multi-cultural and interdenominational, recognizing that there are unique needs across the many stages of life but that the body is strongest when each part is present and sharing their gifts with one another.
In December 2019, they will move into their new facility in Aurora, Colorado – an eastern suburb in the Denver-Metro area. This facility is just one mile west of their present location and will include a 1650 seat Worship Center, a 200 seat Chapel and ample space for Children’s Ministry and Youth. In addition, they lease 5,000 s/f building which serves as the More Life Community Center.

This next season of ministry, anchored by the new campus and increased visibility, positions the church for greater impact as they continue to be a church that transforms their city and beyond by connecting people to Christ, Community and Calling!
